7.  Select HP Jetdirect.

8.  If in step 7 the “Gathering printer information…” stage was successful in selecting the printer driver, click “Add” to create your printer queue and you are finished!
If in step 7 the “Gathering printer information…” stage was NOT successful in selecting the printer driver, select “Select Printer Software…” from the “Print Using:” pop-up menu. Choose the printer model for your IP Printer and click OK. Click “Add” to create your printer queue.

TIP: Enter the model of printer in the “Printer Software” search field to quickly find the printer software to select.
